Default Mac address not from Samsung

My wife new Note 2 mac address appears to come from Murata Manufactuaring (no really, that's how Fing and other apps return the vendor's name) Should I be concern? If even the manufacturing was misspelt, could this unit be bogus? But we bought from a legit outlet and it even has the telecom authority Id reference. Is it normal for Samsung phone to be recognised from other manufacturer?

Many thanks in advance!

Thanks. Actually my Acer Netbook was recognised by Fing before to have Murata Manufacturing (the correct spelling) but this time it has the wrong spelling. And then my Note 2 white bought in Oct last year was recognised to be from Samsung.

So with my wife new Note 2 ruby red, when Fing recognised as Murata with wrong spelling, I was a bit concern. Guess there's nothing to worry. Thanks everyone!
